In a structured literacy classroom, word chains are a vital component of teaching children to read! The Science of Reading tells us that higher level phonemic awareness activities are necessary for fluent readers. Word Chains have students change one phoneme at a time. They will practice substituting, adding, deleting. This manipulating of phonemes helps to strengthen word skills. Explicit phonics for the win!


This resource will give you everything you need to get started with word chaining! No more panicking to come up with words on the spot. It's all done for you!
